Skoda Fabia Hatchback 1.4 16V 2 5d (2008/08) - Owner Review

Leg room in the back is amazing. Build quality brilliant but some brittle plastics. Engine was a bit weak but boot swallowed a weeks shopping. Looks small but massive inside. Great car for the money

Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Sad ...but I would buy one and even thinking of having one as a company car

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Wife laughed when I pulled up. It would look better in a bold colour and a white roof as they do this as an option. My boss thought it was brilliant. I am realy suprised.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Build quality was as much better than my golf but not as good as my wifes Audi but hers cost 3 times as much.

What are you likely to buy next?
I would like a go in the 105 bhp diesel but would hope they brought out a VRS model as I am having one

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
1.4 80bhp was a bit slow as I am used to a vw golf GT TDI but was good on the motorway. Did 80mph with ease. One issue I had was that when it rained the water poured off the windscrren down the side drivers window which made it impossible to see the wing mirror and traffic behind you.

What's it like to park?
real easy
